Tennis News, Alex De Minaur off to a great start v Zsombor Piros as Australia lead Hungary 1-0 in the Day 1 of the 2022 Davis Cup Qualifiers

Great start by the Aussies v Hungary on Day 1 of the 2022 Davis Cup Qualifiers at Ken Rosewall Arena. It was a competitive opening set spell between Australian No.1 Alex De Minaur and Zsombor Piros. However, it’s De Minaur who just narrowly escaped Piros with the early lead before he wrapped up comfortably in straight sets (7-5, 6-2).

Piros would be disappointed with the loss there. He tested De Minaur well that held the Aussie back on occasions, and he almost put in a tiebreaker that would’ve given the Hungarian a great chance to build on from his opening set performance. He just couldn’t give himself a bit more time when Piros made up some lost time, then a close first set loss threw him an even tougher challenge after the break & was unable to find a way out ever since.

And hats off to De Minaur with the win that gifted Australia a 1-0 lead after this first singles match-up. We love how he stuck to his game & never gave up battling while facing a decent opponent like Piros in the first set. Thankfully, he overcame a close battle unscathed when it comes to the executions before De Minaur smashed this game with confidence.

Next up is Thanasi Kokkinakis (Australia) v Marion Fucsvovics (Hungary) in the second singles match of the 2022 Davis Cup Qualifiers series between Australia v Hungary.
